In the final year of study at Newcastle University we were tasked with a final year project. Joop Design was the name given to my personal project, which consisted of the design, development and study of an online participatory platform that provided a space for communities to design concepts and products together. Joop Design works by passing users through a series of stages that provided a loose structure to the design process, people could then submit ideas/inspiration and work together to establish solutions to the initial problem.
